Welcome to Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga atTynga’s Reviews. This is where we showcase books we have received or bought during the week.
Eep! I fell behind on my blogging duties, and therefore, our end of week post is a day late. As Kara mentioned last week, we are combining our hauls and sharing links and other goodies on the weekend. I’ll post up my combined haul for the last two weeks, round up what happened on Great Imaginations for the last part of May, and share some links and other related materials.
First – the book haul!
I have a GREAT selection of books this week, and some nerd-flavored goodies from others. Since I am packing up collectibles this week, I decided to stick Zero Suit Samus in for a bookend. I’m sure she doesn’t mind. Much.
First, I’ll focus on the books. The lovely used book store slashed their prices for Memorial Day, and I have some wonderful books from that haul. Starters by Lissa Price, Stormdancer by Jay Kirtoff (I was sad to find that I did not own an original copy of the book), The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa were all on the new release shelf at Half Price Books. It was a little haul, but it was filled with high quality books!
Since I loved The Humming Room, a few people mentioned The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter. Amazon had it for CHEAP when I researched the book, and, thanks to my wonderful Amazon Prime membership, I bought the book less than half price. This book looks GREAT!
I had a friend go out of the country to Europe this week, and she returned with the Japanese guide to Super Metroid. Metroid is in the top 5 of my favorite video games, and I love the images in the book.
